2009 is one of those unforgettable years in my life, both at personal and professional levels. Some success, some failures, some struggles and some achievements - overall, 2009 had been a well balanced in terms of events. Well, I’m not going to discuss all of those here because if I do, you might click on the ‘ËœX’ on the top-right of your screen. Instead, I’ll just record some of my thoughts that are related to this blog alone. Let’s start:

Yes, I was. You can see that yourself by looking at the post count in the Sidebar Archives section. Out of the 175 posts that I published till now, 121 posts were published this year. July 2009 tops the ranking with 18 posts!

My Blog performed very well in 2009:

My active blogging was reflected by the good amount of traffic that my blog recieved. Here’s a snapshot of my blog’s traffic stats from WordPress.

On the Dev side, I released 3 apps:

While I was working/blogging hard, I was also spending some time to realize my ideas. I released three applications, well each of them were developed using different technology. Here are they for you:
